ELO, the year they toured with the giant clamshell space ship thingy. My friends mom drove us and came along to make sure we didn't do anything fun. We were 14 or so. Lots of lights, fog and a bit of obvious lip-synching. Oakland Coliseum Arena 1977 or there abouts. I saw a lot of the standard fare rock shows at the Oakland Col Arena (Styx, Tull, Rush, Who, etc) but never did a day on the green thing at the outdoor venue. I remember my ears ringing violently after these types of concerts. But somehow no lasting damage...

I did catch a few shows at the Cow Palace, but it was a much longer drive from Livermore - LHS class of '79 - so we usually caught shows in Oakland.

Funny thing is, I didn't see my first Dead show at the Oakland Coliseum Arena until 1992. All Greek Theater, Frost, Warfield and Oakland Aud shows during my time in the Bay area.

My first basketball arena Dead show was 10/11/1983.
